Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. 1 Peter 5:6 NKJV

Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is wait. This is especially true when we’re in a hurry and when we want things to happen now, if not sooner! But God’s plan does not always happen in the way that we would like or at the time of our own choosing. Our duty ---as believers who trust in a benevolent, all knowing Father---is to wait patiently for God to reveal Himself.

We human beings are, by nature, impatient. We know what we want, and we know exactly when we want it: RIGHT NOW! But, God knows better. He has created a world that unfolds according to His own timetable, not ours . . . thank goodness!

When God’s people believe and pray, the Lord will provide, but we must learn to wait on Him with faithful, obedient hearts until the answer comes. Jim Cymbala

A Prayer for Today

Dear Lord, Your timing is always right for me. You have a plan for my life that is grander than I can imagine. When I am inpatient, remind me that You are never early or late. You are always on time, Father, so let me trust in you . . . always. Amen
